This monsoon, RTO ma
This monsoon, RTO may crack down on auto fare refusals Many Mumbaikars complained of fare refusals by autorickshaw drivers during the pre-monsoon showers on Saturday evening, and experts feel this could just be a precursor to the ‘harrowing time’ road commuters can expect during rains. A senior RTO official said the department is likely to launch a fresh drive to curb refusals during monsoon. Commuters’ problems are expected to compound with poor frequency of BEST buses and kaali-peeli taxi population dwindling over the past few months. “We have found that 5-10% auto and taxi drivers refuse fare. Nearly 90% of them are proved guilty as we also have the complainants’ mobile numbers and summon them as witness during hearings, ” said a deputy transport commissioner. RTO sources said every year, 60% of the complaints against auto and taxi drivers are about fare refusals, and a maximum of them are during the monsoon months —June and September. Statistics show that over 15, 000 complaints were registered against errant auto-taxi drivers at the four RTOs in the city in past seven years, and the most common grouse was fare refusal. Saturday evening saw long queues at bus stops outside most railway stations as the BEST bus frequency was poor and automen refused to ply commuters. “I got drenched as I five auto drivers refused to go to my destination, ” complained Rohan Gaikwad, who lives in the eastern suburbs. Same was the case for aggregator cabs as they were few in numbers. “Auto drivers who refuse passengers and leave them stranded in the rain should be imposed with penalty and their permit/licence should be suspended, ” demanded transport activist G R Vora. But automen claim that they refuse passengers only in case of personal emergency. “We refuse commuters if we have to take a lunch break, fill fuel or go home after a shift, ” said an auto driver. As for BEST buses on road, statistics show the fleet size has reduced from 4, 200 a few years ago to 3, 300. “In the name of cost-cutting, the BEST has discontinued several routes, ” said transport analyst Hussain Indorewala.

End of the road for
End of the road for Tata Indica and Tata Indigo as production ends: Here’s what makes Indica an iconic Tata car Tata Indica and Tata Indigo sedan production has been stopped permanently by Tata Motors. Tata Indica has served the company for 20 long years and was first showcased in 1998. The car has helped the company to grow as a brand and here's why the Indica is an iconic car for Tata Motors. By: Ronak Shah May 23, 2018  1:19 PM It’s official now! Tata Motors has ceased the production of its Tata Indica and Tata Indigo cars in India. Starting this financial year 2018-19, Tata Motors has not manufactured a single unit of its Indica hatch and Indigo sedan confirms data provided by SIAM. The company has tasted new success with its IMPACT design cars and old styling on the Indica and Indigo resulted in lower sales and this move was expected sooner or later. During the recently concluded the financial year 2017-18, Tata Motors had manufactured 1, 686 units of Indica and 556 units of its Indigo CS sedan. Gradually the company has now completely stopped the production of the said cars. Tata Motors company spokesperson said, “With the changing market dynamics and the evolution of Tata Motors design language towards impactful design, we have decided to phase out the Indica and the Indigo eCS, a common phenomenon in a product lifecycle.” In many ways, Tata Indica has been an iconic car for Tata in India. Ever since it was first showcased at 1998 Geneva Motor Show the hatchback was an aspirational buy for people who were upgrading from small cars to hatchbacks. Tata Indica is also India’s first fully indigenous car and ever since its launch has been the frontrunner in company’s product line-up. Tata Indica became famous with some very interesting integrated marketing campaigns and was introduced with the tagline “More car per car, ” the ad campaign focused on roomy interiors and affordability. Tata Indica became popular right from the word go and received over 1.15 lakh bookings in just one week of the launch and became the segment leader in just two years. Tata Indica’s success gave the company confidence to launch the all-new Indica in its second generation in 2008 and was named as Indica Vista. Interestingly, the company had showcased an electric version of its Indica Vista sedan way back in 2011 but never made it to production. “Establishing itself as a ‘coming of age car’ for India, the Indica has been a much loved and admired brand, ” the company’s spokesperson further added. The Indica was followed by the Tata Indigo launch in 2002. The Indigo too was received well in the PV market and has been much appreciated for its compact design and spacious interiors. To meet the upcoming emission and safety norms, Tata Motors is now streamlining its product strategy and not all existing cars may see a BS-VI future. Upgrading to BS-VI will require huge investments and it is expected that many of the slow-moving products will be discontinued from the Indian market. Tata Motors has showcased its new IMPACT 2.0 design language on its H5X SUV and 45X hatchback at the Auto Expo 2018. We expect the company to roll out a premium hatchback in India by 2020. After Tata Indica and Tata Indigo, we expect Tata Nano to cease production soon. In the month of April, the company only manufactured 45 units of its Nano. However, we might see Tata Nano being revived in an electric avatar. Not just Tata Motors, we expect other companies including Mahindra to discontinue some of its products from its line-up. While from a business point of view it is completely normal to see changes in product strategy, for many born in the Indica era the car has given many fond memories and has an emotional connection with the car. Tata Motors will continue to provide the required necessary service support to its existing Indica and Indigo customers.
